M*A*S*H

Robert Altman conjures up a naughty anti-military proposition through the eyes of a medical team and their rather hilarious methods of dealing with the everyday horrors around them, while stationed at a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in the Korean War.

Robert Altman conjures up a naughty anti-military proposition through the eyes of a medical team and their rather hilarious methods of dealing with the everyday horrors around them, while stationed at a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in the Korean War.

Altman had the audacity of serving up this blatantly antiwar manifesto while the Vietnam War was still raging, after he was forced to defend its authentically anarchic spirit in front of the entire 20th Century Fox Studio executives, who were none too pleased about its release.

With a caustic sense of humor that's bordering on the macabre and its fly-on-the-wall approach, "M*A*S*H" managed to capture the anti-authoritarian spirit of an entire era with its modernist style and liberal attitude, changing the landscape of American comedy forever. The film won the Palm d'Or at the 1970 Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium. L.K.

      Brewster McCloud

      Brewster McCloud

      A provocative and often surrealist satire of American society, Brewster McCloud is a surprising variation on the Icarus myth brimming with eccentricity and black humor, told as a coming-of-age story about sexual awakening.

      McCabe and Mrs Miller

      McCabe and Mrs Miller

      In the early 1900s, in a small town on the Western border that's transitioning into urbanity, an enigmatic man with an entreprenurial spirit and a lovesick hooker build their version of the American Dream on the foundations of a whorehouse, while the local organized interests decide they want a part of the action.

      California Split

      California Split

      Making his way through the organized chaos of layered dialogues, a noisy score and a largely improvised script - not to mention the performances - Altman builds a precious behavioral comedy for the ages.
